great britain and france who just sided with him on gaza and the united states, and put him in a terrible predicament in the challenge with iran. the domestic equation with this netanyahu coalition is what drives everyone batty. it seems that he's far more interested in worrying about how many seats his coalition is going to win rather than the fate of israel when it comes to its international posture. i say that, it's very hard for me to say that, but that's how i feel. >> eliot: you would think that he would want to keep the international coalition sympathetic to him and show restraint after that vote saying we won't do a b c we'll hold our nose. we know this is more visual than substantive but we won't jeopardize the fate of the peace talks. what do you think is the relationship between the president and netanyahu. >> the president realizes israel's fate is important to the united states. that's why he sided with israel when it came to israel and the missiles being lobbed towards israel. i'm sure he'll remain confident in his commitment to israel, when it comes to having

war. you don't see france going to war with germany or russia with poland. it used to happen all the time, but it's not happening. the best example of all was just a couple of weeks ago when gaza was fighting -- the palestinians were fighting with the israelis, and they lobbed a couple of missiles into tel aviv. i'm sure that both people on both sides could see that the day was coming that they'd be lobbing missiles into jerusalem. and this is what both the christian the jewish religion began there, and it's the holy land. it's some of the greatest tourist attractions in the world. people want to come from all overed world to see it, but not when a war is going on. they realized within a week of war they had made a terrible mistake to go to war. even though it's better to grumble at each other, but not to be shooting at each other and causing damage and wrecking the economy and upsetting people all over the world because these pictures, you have the bbc and cnn there having the pictures of the grandmothers and grandfathers and little children lined up on the street in front of ho

francois o'land of france thinks? >> normally they do because these two countries have been very friendly with israel in recent years but israel is in an election period before january 22 when netanyahu stops the gaza war without a land operation. there are a lot of people saying, hey, you didn't go all the way against hamas. they ate into a huge share of his voters. i think he wants to say no one is going to be able to outflange me from the right. part of the tragedy of this conflict is that the parties cannot agree on a common definition of what is provocative except they agree on one thing. that they each assume the worst of the other side's ultimate intention. israel might say, look, this is political theater. ultimately we're going to discuss this. there will be a two-mile tunnel from north to south. we won't receiver the west bank at all, but the media, the government, everyone says, no, no, there must be something nefarious going on here. they need to get to the negotiating table and discuss the most sensitive issues. >> suarez: ground hasn't been broken on a single house. who is i
